Announcing the Global Challenge to Prevent Breast Cancer

The Global Challenge to Prevent Breast Cancer is a competition designed to surface game-changing breast cancer prevention research ideas.

This challenge, sponsored by the California Breast Cancer Research Program (CBCRP), aims to advance breast cancer primary prevention by surfacing innovative breast cancer prevention research ideas from researchers and others interested in breast cancer prevention. By providing cash prizes, feedback from respected researchers, and the opportunity to present ideas to prominent leaders in the field, the challenge aims to surface breakthrough ideas that will help catalyze the field of breast cancer primary prevention research. The most promising ideas will frame CBCRP’s future funding strategy and will be further developed in California with $15 million in grant funding from the program.

Applications are due by January 7, 2019. Two grand prize winners will receive $5,000 cash prizes.
